    Bracing a Subwoofer box

    Hello, I am currently putting together my plans to build a box for one fi audio ssd 12. I am going to build a ported box and I was wondering about bracing? I will only be pushing 500 watts to this sub but will be upgrading to 1000 rms in the future. I was wondering if putting 45's in the corners would be enough or if I need something more. I keep reading mixed responses about 45's in a sub box. I also am having a hard time understanding the whole port length thing. Any help is always appreciated thanks!

    Building a box for a Fi X 12

    Hello, I am currently in the market for a sub woofer box for a Fi audio X 12 sub woofer. I have been trying to get the specs right with RE audio calculator but it seems I am in need of help. I have room for a H 14" x W 22" x D 22" sub box. I want it to be ported and tuned @ 33Hz I will be powering it with a amp that pushes 500w @2 ohms. Thank you for all of your help. Link to the Sub. http://store.ficaraudio.com/x12/ I plan to make it out of MDF.

    Alright then how should I go about making the box for the Fi audio 12x? The RE audio calculator is kind of confusing.

    What is the difference between the X and the SSD I mean they are like $20 different in price. Then what makes the X series so much better then the SA-12? What options do I need to choice since I will be running it @500w rms in a ported box tuned to 34hz. I really appreciate the help!

    Finding the perfect Sub

    I actually planned on buying a FI audio SSD 12 when I first started looking at a new sub. Then my budget got punched in the face I mean its $50 over my budget with out any options. I have no idea what those options mean but if they made it better I'd get them all. I also have to get a new blade for my circular saw and a jig saw for my port hole in the box. I do have one question though should I use higher gauge between my amp and sub then with regular speakers? Just wondering because in my research someone said that you should use better wire? I think I am using the street wires plastic incased 14 gauge atm.

    Silly because 500w rms is under powering it? or silly becasue it will be okay to under power it a little bit?

    It looks like the Sun down E 12 is a really good sub. I want a Sa-12 but afraid of under powering it. I am going to make my own box so worries about that.

    SSA DCON's are only 300w rms pushing one at 500w doesn't sound right lol.

    Finding the perfect Sub

    Hello, I am looking for a 12" subwoofer to put into a ported box. I had a Alpine type s in a sealed box but after turning it up while listening to bass cannon it busted. Right now I am looking for a new sub but am completely lost as to what brand I should buy. I am using a kenwood x700-5 its a 5 channel amp that pushes 500w rms @2 ohms. I am kind of on a budget so it can't be over board. I was thinking $175 max for the sub alone. My friend is getting a RE Audio SEX12D4 for $140 I personally I have never heard anything about them. My other friend just got a 12" alpine type R and he says its amazing. I guess I could just buy one of those 2 but I refuse to buy something with out doing the research first. My type s was a present so I had no choice in the matter but it was great while it lasted. Thanks for all of your help!
